Metalurg - PSG
Category: European handbal
I don't want to be pessimistic, but I think that Metalurg will lose the match against PSG.
These teams have already met last season and both teams won their home matches. Metalurg had amazing season and many unforgettable matches. The squad is practically the same, Naumce Mojsovski is back after the injury but fantastic goalkeeper Darko Stanic has problems again and he will leave the club sooner or later. I'm not sure will he play or not, but he has no motivation to play for the club any more. Metalurg is well organized, the players give 100% in every European match, but the quality is limited for European conditions. Metalurg can't be compared with Barcelona, PSG, Veszprem and the clubs from Germany. PSG are even stronger this season with Omeyer, Accambray and Barachet. Hansen remains the key player in the team, but there are many quality and experienced players and PSG is a dream team right now. They have one defeat in the league, but the motivation won't be the same. They will come to Skopje to show Metalurg who is who and to beat them.
I expect interesting match, EHF made this encounter "match of the day" with full right. I expect the French dream-team to show its potential and to win.
